the other debate where he made stuff up and didn't know his own tax plan, making them stick to what they've been the last six or seven months. >> this is where i think paul ryan will have pressure on him and where i expect paul ryan to perform very well. i mean, i found obama's debate performance totally lacking in specifics. we still don't know what his tax plan is or his deficit plan or his budget plan. but paul ryan has become the personification for the democrats of all that is callous and cold and evil about the romney campaign. so ryan now has i think an opportunity to not only explain his plan more importantly romney's plan, but to explain it in a way that is compassionate and human. and i expect he'll do a very good job of that. >> there's a tricky thing that ryan has to do. and i think you suggested it there, carly. there's clearly a distinction between the ryan plan. actually, there have been multiple ryan plans on multiple fronts. >> that's right. >> and the romney plan. so ryan can't get lured into a debate over the specifics. >> i agree with you. >> here's the problem, mitt
. they keep misquoting him. but let me tell you about the mitt romney i know. don't raise taxes on small businesses because they are our job creators. >> vice-president biden. >> incredible. >> look, you both saw benjamin netanyahu hold up that picture of a bomb with the red line i. thank heavens we have the sanctions in place. it is in spite of their opposition. they have given 20 waivers to this sanction. all i have to point to are the results. they're four years closer toward a nuclear weapon. when we see -- look... did they come in and inherit a tough situation, absolutely. but we are going in the wrong direction. slower than last year and last year was slower than the year before. job growth was slower than in august and august was slower than it was in july. >> sean: that was a review of the vice-president's unhinged behavior last night. disturbing as that was, when it came to substance, the results were even worse. we will have a complete fact check in the next segment. but i would be remiss if i didn't include the biggest lie at the top of the program. it involves the administrat
that president obama has not raised taxes while he has been in office. seriously? mitt romney is dropping that argument? he doesn't think president obama has raised taxes? no, not really. his campaign later saying, never mind what mitt romney just said. that's not actually what he believes. sure, he said president obama didn't raise taxes, and president obama didn't raise taxes, but really, mitt romney officially thinks that he did. they have done this over and over and over and over again, on big issues like health reform, on small issues like whether he met a guy or not. and it is a ridiculous technique. i mean, think about what this means for the long run. i mean, the romney campaign is training the country to not believe this guy when he is talking. they're training the country to feel that, you know, wherever you hear mitt romney saying something today, don't worry, it doesn't really matter. it is all subject to revision later. long-term, this is a weird technique. it has been a strange political technique from the get-go this year. but mostly, it has worked for them. them correcting
a middle class tax hike be prevented if the wealthy get a tax cut? >> it's not mathematically possible. >> it is mathematically possible. it's been done before. >> it has never been done before. >> reporter: on the style side, biden smiled a lot. ryan, a debate rookie, kept his cool. so did ryan add to the romney momentum or did biden help put the obama campaign back on track? now the pollsters go to work to try to figure o that out while voters digest the second of four debates. danville, kentucky, i'm steve handles men, nbc news, lynn, back to you. >>> steve, thanks so much. nbc's andrea mitchell led our truth squad in danville last night with a fact check of the debate. she started with the deadly september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and paul ryan accusing the obama administration not correctly protecting the personnel. >> what we should not be doing is rejecting claims for calls for more security in our barracks, in our marine. we need marines in benghazi when the commander on the ground says we need more forces for security. there were requests for extra securit
is severely anti-choice. and what he's doing here, whether it's on choice, on pre-existing conditions, on tax cuts for the rich, is all a deception designed to trick people into voting against themselves. >> so, terry, it seems like mitt romney will do the bidding of the fundamentalists like tony perkins if he becomes president? >> i think he will, but i think it's his own bidding too. i think it was important of you to show that clip of him bullying during the debate in 2002. that is the way he is with women. the stories that have emerged out of massachusetts, where he tried to bully a woman who was -- whose pregnancy was actually threatening her life. she had -- she and her husband had gotten permission from the mormon church elders to terminate this life-threatening abortion. he went in and tried to intimidate her into not terminating this -- that pregnancy. that is the way he is with women. and he -- so my sense of him is that he will lie without conscious, because it's the same thing, as intimidating and bullying. it's manipulation, it's just doing whatever he wants to do in order to get
-the-board tax cut. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and still preserve these important preferences for middle-class taxpayers... >> not mathematically possible. >> it is mathematically possible. it's been done before. it's precisely what we're proposing. >> ( laughs ) it has never been done before. >> it's been done a couple of times, actually. >> it has never been done before. jack kennedy lowered tax rates, increased growth. ronald reagan... >> oh, now, you're jack kennedy. >> woodruff: abortion also figured as a key issue in the debate. both men are catholics, and they were asked to describe their position, based on their faith. >> i don't see how a person can separate their public life from their private life or from their faith. and i respect people who don't agree with me on this. but the policy of a romney administration will be to oppose abortion, with the exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother. >> life begins at conception. that's the church's judgment. i accept it in my personal life. i just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman. i do n
she. >> you don't want your taxes to go to something that you don't agree with. is that your -- >> bill: i want my taxes to go to people who need help. now, bill moyers needs help, i understand that. but not economically. >> bill: now in speaking about portion the liberal take is usually he has to spend all the money because if he didn't, america would be in a depression, caused by the republican president president george w. bush. the other side says nonsense, the president is using the treasury to impose so-called social justice. when it comes to actual numbers, things can get complicated. >> the president, his first year, there was a definite sit of 1.2 trillion. he held it steady. >> bill: all together, how much debt has president obama run up? >> $6 trillion. >> bill: very good, $6 trillion. >> i learned that on sesame street. >> bill: the job of the president now is get the debt under control and you got to cut stuff! >> exactly. so right now -- [ applause ] the debt is steady. right now what we've done is balance it. >> bill: no, we haven't balanced the debt! are you k
cuts, medicare reform, taxes, are going to be major issues tonight when the candidates who have been debating those very questions in separate stump speeches, now they get to do in person face-to-face. joining me now, pennsylvania senator pat toomey, served on last year's super committee to try to tackle the deficit and of course has been a budget hawk throughout your tenure in the house and now the senate. thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. >> great to have you here. what should paul ryan say when joe biden goes after him on how devastating, these are biden's words, devastating the budget cuts would on discretionary domestic spending if he sticks to the defense entitlement and tax postures that he's outlined? >> well, a few things, andrea. one is the simple fact that over the ten-year budget window of the ryan budget, spending on average grows yfr year. it grows by 3% a year. so most americans -- >> not every category. >> true. but most people think that a government that's at a record size as a percentage of compete, the government that has doubled in spending in the las
. >> when talking about sesame street and not taxes, you know, foreign policy or, you know, what to do about the fiscal cliff, what kind of a campaign is that? >> well, this is -- so the gamut here, you mentioned, this is on cable tv nationally in some broadcast tv nationally and not in any swing state. if the obama campaign spent $100,000 on this ad buy, i would be surprised. they certainly don't have any real money behind it. this is meant to be a talker in the media and to send to their base and say see, mitt romney, he's being ridiculous. the danger when you do things like this, this close to an election is to your point, i got lots of republicans sending me the famous barack obama quote from 2008 about john mccain that he can't talk about big things in this election so he's trying to make it about small things. i don't think barack obama is trying to make this election about big bird. this seems a targeted strategy at a small group of people. at the same time it certainly opens them up to the, you know, look, we have serious problems in this country, barack obama has said that many time
of reducing tax marginal tax rates and increasing revenues and the cost it might add to the deficit is criticized as being non-specific. how do they respond to that? >> governor romney has laid out a framework. any time you have a plan such as this, you don't want to put all the details out there because there are negotiations that need to take place. the framework has been looked up by six different independent organizations including those from harvard and princeton. to say this plan will work. so the details don't need to be out there right now. the framework is very clear about what mitt romney and paul ryan want to do to strengthen our middle-class. >> gregg: i might say that the tax policy center which is cited by the obama campaign it's going to cost five trillion has been said by the director of the to be completely untrue. let me move on. the president has added two new things to his campaign speeches. he tells his audiences he says romney wants to kill big bird but more credibly he points to the unemployment rate that drops below 8%. it shows the economy under his leadersh
the estate tax, achieve north america energy independence, claiming at the same time that president obama's policies would hurt farmers. the governor talks about his five-point plan to fix the economy, something he says will help everyone from farmers to small businesses. >> i'll make sure our tax policies and our regulatory policies and healthcare, all these things come together to make it easier for small business to grow and thrive. america needs this new direction. we can't go on the path we've been on. we must restore america's strength and i will do it with your help. >> the obama campaign leveling a new attack at governor romney today over his plans to cut spending, specifically cut funding for pbs that would affect big bird. they have a new ad about it on today. >> bernie madoff, gut tons of greed and the evil genius to towered over him. one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird, big bird, big bird. >> it's me big bird. >> big yellow, a men as to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. >> reporter: the republican n
trillion tax cut. that's not my plan." mitchell: "the nonpartisan tax policy center concluded that mitt romney's tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years." vo: why won't romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because according to experts, he'd have to raise taxes on the middle class - or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here... w could we ever trust him here? then you may be looking for help in choosing the right plan for your needs. so don't wait. call now. whever your health coverage needs, unitedhealthcare can help you find the right plan. open enrollment to choose your medicare coverage begins october 15th and ends december 7th. so now is the best time to review your options and enroll in a plan. medicare has two main parts, parts a and b, to help cover a lot of your expenses, like hospital care... and doctor visits. but they still won't cover all of your costs. now's the time to learn about unitedhealthcare plans that may be right for you. are you looking for something nice and easy? like a single plan t
on point impressed both of them hard. he pressed trying very hard on his budget numbers and tax plan and doesn't not work? does this add up? triggered by repeatedly from her. the interesting thing is the question of optics we were talking about before. there's also the question of how ryan's performance will play. it is a presidential? did that experience did not get comfortable enough on that stage? >> he was commonplace and that's what people wanted an obviously was rehearsed in taste. if he did put in that romney did on monday at the foreign policy institute, which was to take libya and pivot to a broader critiques of foreign policy, just as biden pivoted because it's a weakness getting out of iraq and afghanistan. >> biden seemed prepared to come back with the issue of funding for the security. they knew he was going to get attacked on security and had his answer right away, which was he wanted us, you cut the team. it was a good job of him expecting. in terms of this clip, we saw both sides anticipating this discussion. they both have a question was going to come. it came first
. you can't have this cake and eat it, too, approach that he had last week on taxes. i'm going to have a huge tax cut for everyone but i don't have a plan. we're going to arm the good guys without the bad guys. i think he looks less serious in a speech when he's trying to talk about a way he would like the world to look -- >> latin america is another example. he had two sentences on latin america. that was hugo chavez. he didn't congratulate him on winning this weekend. but he -- >> i'm not sure he needed to. >> but two lines, two sentences on latin america, a great economic power down there, brazil, a company named after my own family. and no mention of brazil -- >> don't you think that this is the romney campaign trying to respond to what has frankly been a mix of sort of incompetence, blunders and inexplicable comments from the white house on libya the last few weeks and that's why the focus was on middle east. >> perhaps on mitt romney's failure to establish himself as a world-class leader when you go to great britain and basically insult the people there, insult the people in pola
